Democracy Lost: Charges Of ‘Election Corruption’ Being Made By Election Justice USA And Trust Vote

Election corruption charges and Democracy Lost, 2016

Charges of “election corruption” and “democracy lost” have been made by various watchdog organizations in this current election cycle. This is an important story coming front and center on the heels of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland and during the currently ongoing drama at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia.

New York voter Alba Guerrero is quoted in the document “Democracy Lost: A Report on the Fatally Flawed 2016 Democratic Primaries” that recently released online. In this 2016 case, Judge Ira Margulis determined that Guerrero’s official voter registration information may have been tampered with. In fact, Judge Margulis actually changed his decision from denying Guerrero the right to vote in New York’s Democratic primary because evidence emerged “that Guerrero’s signature had been forged, switching her to Republican without her knowledge or consent.”

Guerrero is quoted in the report.

“It just boggles my mind that it could happen that easily to so many people and without them even knowing that they are being manipulated like that…I never would have thought something like that could happen.”

Voters may also want to look for more up-to-date information from organizations like Trust Vote, submitted by Inquisitr reader Emma Samms. Voters take note, perhaps the system is rigged this year.

The watchdog voter advocates Election Justice USA have a Facebook page with the specific points uncovered in the report.

It seems that “… the majority of the registration tampering could only have been carried out by computer hackers: in many cases, the changes to voter registrations are provably back-dated in official electronic records,” according to the organization.

“Other forms of direct voter suppression, however, were carried out by partisan elections officials in states like New York and California,” they said in the “Democracy Lost” report. “In Brooklyn alone, 121,000 voters were wrongly or even illegally purged from voter rolls leading up to New York’s vote. The Brooklyn voter purge disproportionately affected Hispanic voters. Analyses in Democracy Lost show that voter purges also disproportionately affected Sanders’ vote totals: the percentage of purged voters for each precinct was a significant predictor of Clinton’s vote share. New York City’s Board of Elections suspended two high-level employees without pay but has offered no substantive explanation.”

“Repeated attack”

Election Justice USA (EJUSA), the voter advocacy group that produced the document “Democracy Lost,” reported (with her permission) on the Guerrero situation. They have been reporting they are under “repeated attack” since the document went online as well, per their statement over on Twitter.

And some replies to the EJUSA’s urgent message indicate public sentiment regarding the issue this year and the “repeated attacks” being reported.

Over on the sub-reddit page for Bernie Sanders supporters, comments reflect shock at the possibility of election fraud.

Voter beware: results “largely unverified”

“Many US states use touch-screen computer voting systems that do not even generate a paper trail,” according to the summary of the “Democracy Lost” report over on a Facebook page. “Almost all ballots, whether paper or not, are counted by computers. All counting is non-transparent and inaccessible for verification by the public. The few states that audit the computer counts by hand only examine a tiny percentage of the ballots and even this count is not performed according to proper statistical procedures. In other words, the results of our elections, based on computer counts, are largely unverified.”

Further, the report from the voter advocate group states that election officials seem to have “targeted” certain classes of voters this election cycle. Voters may want to hang on to all registration and voting proof before, on, and after the November general election if they opt to come out and support any of the other candidates in the race by then.

“Partisan elections officials also targeted specific classes of voters known to support Senator Sanders. In California, for instance, six unique methods were employed to systematically disenfranchise ‘no party preference’ (independent) voters who were legally eligible to vote in the Democratic primary.”

“Plaintiffs are in imminent harm”

It appears as though voters need to hold on to all voting forms, receipts, and proof that they have in defense of their right to vote here in America. And keep these pieces of proof before, during, and even after the November 2016 election, as there may be a need to fight for your right to vote in a legal proceeding. your own case and grab back your right to vote.

Many plaintiffs this year are alleging that their official voter registrations have been changed, as seen here in the United States New York-related case archives. Per one case document, seen here online, attorney Blair P. Fellows “affirmed” the issues for the case, the most drastic described as being “[p]laintiffs are in imminent harm of losing their right to vote.”

The first issue addressed was described as being the “injunctive relief” pursuant to “Rule 65 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure.”

“Many US states use touch-screen computer voting systems that do not even generate a paper trail,” according to the summary of the “Democracy Lost” report over on a Facebook page. “Almost all ballots, whether paper or not, are counted by computers. All counting is non-transparent and inaccessible for verification by the public. The few states that audit the computer counts by hand only examine a tiny percentage of the ballots and even this count is not performed according to proper statistical procedures. In other words, the results of our elections, based on computer counts, are largely unverified.”
